Situated in the heart of glorious South Devon, the English Riviera offers something for everyone. Minutes walk from the hotel lies Meadfoot Beach with a variety of coastal walks and spectacular views.
Ten minutes walk in the other direction lies Torquay's waterfront that is the focus of life in the town. Here you will find the palm-lined promenade, seafront gardens, a lively harbour and an international marina.
World class attractions such as Paignton Zoo and Living Coasts sea life centre provide entertainment for children and adults alike.
It is also a great base to explore the rest of Devon including Dartmoor, the market town of Totnes, or indulge in some high class shopping in Exeter.
Steeped in history, there are many National Trust and English Heritage stately homes and castles within walking or driving distance. Cockington, the archetypal chocolate box village is two miles away. Further afield the world famous Eden Project is under two hours by car.
At night the bay transforms into a wonderland of coloured lights. Torquay has everything from vibrant wine bars and traditional pubs to cosy intimate restaurants. Torquay boasts a thriving restaurant scene to cater for all tastes, including the Michelin star awarded Elephant brasserie.
With one of the biggest fish markets on our doorstep in Brixham as one would expect there are a number of excellent seafood restaurants. The hotel concierge can make recommendations and reservations on your behalf.
